February’s Mantra

ButtercupKid

To the tune of “The Grand Old Duke of York”:

When you start C25k

It may well make you frown:

Your calves will ache to the top of the hill

And your knees will ache back down !

But never give up on the plan

For soon you will be in the swing:

With legs grown strong

You’ll fly along,

Glad and proud to be running 😄

I read on fb today how a lady did the London marathon in over 10 hours. It was dark by the time she’d finished and she was being jeered at etc etc but she carried on and bloody finished. She’s fantastic,

Sometime in January, I think. The Black Dog isn’t into poetry. Things must be looking up 😀
